Job Type


Company Description

At Koneksa, we are focused on using new technologies to improve clinical research and drug development. We help leading life sciences companies and research hospitals remotely capture real-world data from patients. Our projects deploy digital health technologies such as FDA approved activity trackers, wearable vital sign monitors, and other emerging monitoring devices that collect data outside the clinical and laboratory setting. We are developing digital biomarkers that help our customers make faster decisions, often using smaller studies, with technologies that enhance the experience of the patients who participate.

We're on a constant quest to improve the tools and endpoints that are used to get the right new therapies to patients who need them. Our experienced and diverse team challenges traditional development paradigms to work at the intersection of what some would consider competing forces—compliance and innovation. At Koneksa, we believe that science, technology, analytics, and agile learning experiences are core drivers to develop patient-centric solutions that enable our customers to make faster decisions in clinical trials.
